In September '99, Arebella and I issued a 'bad fic' challenge, and fic started pouring in. The end results were less bad fic than well-directed parody, and so, after some discussion onlist, this parody page was born. What you'll find below, then, are deliberately terrible fics and surprisingly wonderful reads. So pull out the Depends: these puppies are funny! Note: these parodies are organized by title.

Warning: The Surgeon General has determined that reading this fic may raise blood sugar. Diabetics are strongly cautioned.
Summary: This story is born of one of my squicks: mushy Ares. I would normally apologize to a list for inflicting something this awful upon them, but since this is a list dedicated to the God of War, fuck it-SUFFER! <insert evil laugh here>
